CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Seeing Religion in China: Visual Essays of Religious Sites

In order to better understand and demonstrate religion in China, the Center on Religion and Chinese Society at Purdue University invites submissions of visual essays, including pictures/videos and text, for a contest entitled “Seeing Religion in China: Visual Essays of Religious Sites.” The Center will invite scholars and professional photographers to form a committee to judge the visual essays.

PRIZES

Grand Prize: $1000 (one award)

Second Prize: $500 (six awards)

Third Prize: $200 (30 awards)

Each submission must focus on ONE specific religious site in Mainland China. A religious site can be a temple, a church, a mosque, or other type of site for religious activities. Each visual essay should include 5 to 15 pictures (including short video clips) and 800-1,200 words (English or Chinese). In addition to being visually attractive, the photos and text of the essays should tell a story or provide information about the religious site being depicted. This may include background and historical information, analysis of worshippers who visit the site, depiction of rituals carried out at the site, visual or textual representation of how the site is managed (leadership, relationship with state, etc.), or other relevant information. Visual essays may depict change over time, by including older photos of the site, or pictures of older and newer buildings on the same site. The text for the essay should contextualize the photos/videos, focusing on the religious site and worshippers rather than the author’s experience.

Examples of recent photo essays from Time magazine can be found here: http://time.com/tag/photo-essay/. For a discussion of good photo essays, you are encouraged to read “Ways of Seeing: The Contemporary Photo Essay” by Phil Bicker at the Time magazine website: http://time.com/3626915/ways-of-seeing-the-contemporary-photo-essay/.

The visual essays may be presented in Word/PDF form, or may be submitted in another format, such as Esri Story Map. The photos/videos may be attached as higher resolution figures in addition to being found in the visual essays.

 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

  • Each participant may submit up to two visual essays.
  • Each essay should include 5 to 15 photos. (If videos are included, no more than three video clips, each no longer than 30 seconds.)
  • Essays must include complete information on the (formal) name and address of the religious site.
  • Photographs and video clips must be original, without alteration (standard optimization, such as cropping, adjustment to color and contrast, or removal of dust is acceptable).
  • Photographs should be in high-resolution JPEG format (ideally no smaller than 1920 pixels).
  • Each photo must include a caption of no more than 50 words.
  • All photographs/videos should be from the author, or list the source if not from the author. If a historical photograph is included in the essay, you must have the copyright or permission to use the image or ensure it is in the public domain.
  • The text of the essay must be 800-1,200 words in length.

In submitting a visual essay to this contest, participants agree to abide by the above instructions and acknowledge that the Center on Religion and Chinese Society holds the right to use all or parts of the visual essays, including photographs, videos, and text, in exhibitions, publications, websites and other non-commercial purposes without paying additional remuneration. The author will, however, be credited when his or her work is used.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

The contest is open to all, regardless of age, sex, nationality, or country of residence. The awardees will be responsible for any taxes associated with the awards.

The deadline for submitting visual essays is April 30, 2019. Winners will be announced by May 31, 2019. Submissions can be uploaded by clicking: Visual Essay Contest Submission. Inquiries should be sent to crcs@purdue.edu.
